I'm thinking about coming to New York in October or November and I will be going alone. No problem during the day, enough to see and do.
But what is there to do at night for people who are travelling alone?
Any tips for restaurants, shows, drinks etc?

Oct is a gorgous month. Night life and meeting people, no problem. Have you thought were you would like to stay. The Standard is a new hotel over looking the Highline. Great area, restaurants etc.

Wow, that is some hotel!!
I was thinking about a hotel more midtown, like somewhere between the Empire State Building and Central Parc. But I don't know that area is with nightlife.
I guess the Meat Packing district is more lively right?
Oracle?

The area between the Empire State Bldg. and Central Park is a commercial area. If you're looking for night life and a young, more local crowd, the Meatpacking District is great.

A good tip for dining alone (which is very common here) is that many top restaurants serve their full dining menu at the bar. It's really hard to get a reservation at many top places, but it's often easy to snag a seat at the bar.

good to hear dining alone is very common, in Holland people look at you strangely and think it's sad if you eat alone in a restaurant.

are there any other affordable hotels in the Meatpacking district?

Hi Guys,

I'm coming to New York in September with a friend and I'd like to stay around the same area (just somewhere with a nightlife).

The Standard is a little out of my price range and the Colonial House Inn is fully booked for the dates that I'm there (Sept7-11).

I've got a booking at The Paramount which I can cancel (I booked the hotel before looking into what the area was like) and I'm paying $930 incl. tax for the 4 nights.

Is there anywhere else you can suggest please?

Thanks!
